Avesta Art Academy

2010 saw the start of Avesta Art Academy. Inspired by Avesta Art’s unique fusion of industrial history and contemporary art, the Municipality of Avesta has created an artistic centre of learning of national importance. The target groups are many – artists and musicians, adult students of art, researchers and students at colleges and universities, cultural entrepreneurs, decision makers and those responsible for cultural work that is important for a town’s identity and development. Avesta Art Academy is to be continually developed in the coming years.

Parties involved are Länskonst Dalarna (the county art commission), regional development organisation Bergslagssatsningen, Uppsala University as well as individual artists and musicians.
